[Joint CFP] Conference 2021 – Urban and Regional PE and Neoliberalism WGs

CFP: Urban and Regional Political Economy and Neoliberalism Stream, IIPPE Online Conference, September 12-19, 2021

Deadline for Submission of Abstracts: May 15, 2021

The Urban and Regional Political Economy and Neoliberalism working groups of IIPPE welcome contributions on the theme of how neoliberalism is transforming cities. We are especially interested in papers linking urban political economy and financial geography. The new relationship between local governments, national states and financial markets is taking different forms in different geographies under neoliberalism, resulting in high financial risks and a significant change in the structure of local and national governments. Following this framework, we particularly welcome papers on:

  • Restructuring of local state at the time of financialisation.
  • The roles the state plays in financialisation of urban development (i.e. housing, transportation)
  • Debtfare states at the local level: municipal debt, financialisation of infrastructure (i.e. transportation, water, and other public services).
  • The political economy of municipal financial mechanisms: new financial mechanisms and tools (i.e. municipal bonds, green municipal bonds, land value capture).
  • Financialisation and retrenchment of local social welfare services (i.e. social housing)
